people have signed up for new insurance, and president obama's promise that you can keep your plan, not true for potentially millions of americans. so we know all of that is wrong. now people are wondering how to fix it, how to fix things. with us now is shaun spicer, communications director. good morning, sean. >> good morning, carol. great to be with you. >> nice to have you here. we appreciate it. taxpayers have spent more than $170 million on this website. if we don't get it together and fix this thing, won't we just end up spending more money? >> well, i think the answer is yes. i think we've got a bigger problem of accountability and we saw that on full display yesterday when the secretary testified. when she clearly didn't know her own program and said it would have been illegal for her to sign up for it, which is patently not true, according to so you've got to wonder if they don't understand the nature of their own prarjs not only how are they going to implement a website but how are they going to implement a health care system. secondly she was dismissive
of that makes a difference. yesterday obama was on tv talking, we stop insurance companies from discriminating against women. well, women go to the doctor much more often. maybe they're smart or maybe they're hypochondriacs, we don't know. stuart: and i have to watch your show tonight to see if you're taking that left ward lurch. and you're pounding the table on the side effects of obamacare. we've got that and the lack of competition. i'm going to run a short clip of what you're talking about. >> central planning. stuart: central planning, roll it. >> here is the president signing obamacare. politicians and activists were so happy. now, everyone will be covered. trouble is, covering everyone means less competition. we need that competition in health care because when you don't have real competition, you get products like, well, remember these? these are the car made by east germans made of plastic. it was a terrible car. you had to put the oil and gas in separately and shake the car to mix them. it's hard to drive, it spews pollution. yet, it was the pride of east germany. the waiting list to
to try to get insured at the same time and can't get on the website. this is unmitigated disaster for the obama administration. i think as soon as the website comes up, everyone should be mandated. the sooner they realize this thing is going to fail from a policy standpoint not website standpoint, better for republicans going forward. get new people in the house and senate, push it that way. >> i thought it was curious they would write in the speech everybody should shop around. at the same time people report they can't get on the website to do that. deductible increases are surprising people and not only out of pocket costs, the prescription deductible is now giving people sticker shock as well. it is interesting that the white house press core has been pressing the white house for a while. i'm curious how long that's going to last. it's possible they could get bored with this and try to move on to something else by monday. >> gutfeld, this is a halloween stinker. no good coming out of this. >>> i looked up sticker shock in obama care law, and you know it's considered a post deci
